While the Wii U is still being digested by the world at large, my girlfriend asked if this is something she needed to own this morning, graphic artist Anthony Veloso has put together this amazing animated history of (pracically) every console Nintendo has put out.

Nothing a little tickling of the 'ol nostalgia bone on a Saturday morning. Even we had forgotten about a few of these guys. Gameboy Micro seemed to have slipped by us. The animation is rad and the music is a perfect accompaniment. Watch the video and let us know what you think over on Twitter.
